There is a growing group of enlightened wealth management firms that recognizes the transformation taking place in the private foundation space
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (PRWEB) March 10, 2007
Clients of The Commonwealth Group will now have access to Foundation Source's innovative technology and comprehensive support services for private foundation administration and philanthropic advice. These services benefit clients who already have a foundation as well as those who are considering establishing one, and include state and federal filings, compliance monitoring, charity research and online tools to managing the day-to-day activities of the foundation.
"Affluent families face unique challenges, including the transmission of values across generations. We believe that strategic philanthropy not only helps promote family continuity across generations, but functions as the medium through which generations communicate values," said Mark Sachs, director of family wealth planning at The Commonwealth Group. "The private foundation is a very effective vehicle for accomplishing these goals. With Foundation Source providing philanthropic advice and effectively removing the onerous administrative requirements that typically prevent families from taking advantage of a family foundation, we know our clients will get the most out of this experience."
"There is a growing group of enlightened wealth management firms that recognizes the transformation taking place in the private foundation space," said Matt Brill, Foundation Source Regional Manager for the Southeast. "We look forward to working with The Commonwealth Group to help its clients become more effective philanthropists and create a lasting legacy of making a difference through their private foundations."
